"Get Busy!" [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914
"Get Busy l" Get busy and get '3 ! Seems quite easy, doesn't it? At all events Messrs Dickenson and Forster, auctioneer and estate agents, can take credit to themselves for having disturbed the peace of mind of the public at large. Probably we are accessories by helping them to do it ! The firm named have handed over the sum of E3 to a well known Prahran gentleman to present to the first person that asks him the follow ing questions: " Have you seen Dickenson and Fors er's new auction room, 99 Chapel street ?" and 'Have you got £3 ?" The questions are responsible for the manufacture of some nice little stories. For instance the other day Jones said to Smith, " Have you seen Dickenson and Forster's new auction room, 99 Chapel street ?" Smith grinned like a full moon and shook his head in the affirmative. Jones thought he was on a good wicket, and put the next question, " Have you got £3 ?" Smith became downcast, said, " Here's my tram." and he was off ! At tea that evening, so it is ...

Consecration. [Newspaper Article] — Prahran Chronicle — 28 February 1914
Consecration. This is the great business and meaning of our life on earth: that we should more and more yield up our hearts to God's great grace of ove; that we should let it enter, more fully and more freely into us so that it may even fill our whole heart and life. We must day after day be driving back, in His strength, the sin that doth so easily beset us, and the selfishness that sin has fas tened in our hearts; and then His love will day by day increase in us. Prayer will win and keep it; work will strengthen and exercise it; the Bible will teach us how to know and prize it, how to praise God for it; the Holy Eucharist will ever renew and quicken its power in our hearts. And so, love and joy and peace will grow in us, beyond all that we can ask or think ; and He will forgive us, for love's sake, all the failures, all the faults in whatever work He has given us to do, and will bring us at last into the fullness of that life which even here he has suffered us to know. BISHOP FRAN...
